We originally were coming for a beading workshop, guided tour, and dinner, but the person who does the beading workshop is also the chef, and she had a family emergency. They let us know as soon as possible and we decided to just come out for the tour. I am very glad we did. Our

This village is a work on progress. I notice other reviewers unhappy with the lack of activities and facilities, but I think in a year or two they may reach critical mass as a good attraction. Our tour guide, an elder, told us his story of growing up in the area, being forced to

Thanks Don, for visiting our Heritage Village. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. Throughout the summer we have different events and our guests can also book a variety of activities such as different workshops, crafts as well as meals. For our drop-in visitors we always try to accommodate and most times can offer the guided tour without previous reservations. Thanks for taking the time to review and we hope to see you visit us again.

We arrived too late to take a tour (next time!) but enjoyed walking around and looking at the old and reproduction pit houses and other structures. The views of the river are gorgeous. The young people at the visitor's center were very knowledgeable and friendly.

We are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your visit to our Heritage Village. During the first part of June we were just in the process of opening the site for the season, we always take the teepees down for the winter. Traditional dresses are part of ceremonies and special events and are not generally worn every day. We would have been happy to offer you a guided tour which we can provide on very short notice. If you have any other questions, feel free to email us at heritagevillage@xatsull.com.
